Motion - Remove Night Compensate

Remove night_compensate feature

Description of Patch

I would like to entirely remove the night_compensate feature. It tries to lower the noise level by a fixed value when a certain low level of brightness is reached, although I believe that noise increases at dark light conditions. The noise_tune algo can handle this task much better and is only run once a second, while night_compensate runs every frame (at any light condition - not only 'at night').

I haven't build a patch yet, because I just want to discuss it first. But I will if we agree on it.

Installation of Patch (Not available yet!)

Download the patch file. If it is packed as a gz or tar.gz unpack it first. Then copy it to the motion source directory and issue the command (assuming the patch file is called filename_of_patch_file.diff)

patch < filename_of_patch_file.diff

Then re-build Motion and test the patch.

Discussion and Comments

It makes sense to me , but maybe if we remove night_compensate , we have to explain how to get the same effect in MotionGuide.

I agree. it is an old feature. The newer noise tune is much better.
